GTA 6 Hacking: London Police Arrested a 17 Year Old Suspect

GTA 6 Hacking: London Police Arrested a 17-Year-Old Suspected to Link with Rockstar Hacking: In a recent tweet from the City of London Police on Friday morning, London police, assisted by Britain’s National Cyber Crime Unit, detained a still-unidentified 17-year-old on suspicion of hacking who is reportedly from Oxfordshire. The 17-year-old was detained in connection with the Rockstar breach that threatened the game’s source code and exposed early Grand Theft Auto 6 graphics, according to technology journalist Matthew Keys, who based his report on unnamed sources. According to reports, the hacker also took credit for the Uber attack, which provided black hat access to the company’s website and internal slack channels.

Someone posted nearly a hundred pieces of footage of the upcoming Rockstar game GTA 6 online on September 18, 2022. According to Rockstar, they gained access to the studio’s database and stole the footage. In a statement released on Monday, Rockstar acknowledged the source of the leaks and assured fans that the event will not impede the creation of the game

They said: “We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorised third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our system.”

Keys stated that more information is anticipated later today from the FBI and potentially the London police. There isn’t much information available about the person who has been taken into custody, but according to earlier Bloomberg reports, cybersecurity researchers were able to pinpoint a 16-year-old living with his mother not far from Oxford in the UK as the source of a string of hacks linked to the teen hacker group LAPSUS$. The report also mentioned that this British adolescent had connections to a similar-aged kid in Brazil.

Even after London police revealed they had detained two more adolescents linked to LAPSUS$ in April, the gang continued to move forward and launch swift attacks against both large digital firms and governments. According to the researchers cited by Bloomberg, LAPSUS$ hackers have taunted their victims through internal messengers, through Slack, and even joined Zoom calls to mock the people attempting to repair the damage caused by the hacks. They are not only willing to accept data theft as payment enough.
